To a ca­sual ob­server the clas­sic car mar­ket has been on a long up­ward tra­jec­tory since the late Nineties. Yet the closer we get to the end of this decade, the more it looks like the spec­u­la­tors have left the party. Quite dra­matic growth is still seen lower down the scale, where some younger clas­sics are de­vel­op­ing cult sta­tus. At the top end of the mar­ket, many prices peaked around sum­mer 2015 and have since cooled a lit­tle. Now, with val­ues sta­ble and en­thu­si­asts tak­ing over from the money men, a stead­ier rise can re­sume. To un­pick this in­trigu­ingly mixed pic­ture, six mar­ket ex­perts guide us to the hottest buys in ev­ery price bracket.
